Description

Yes, here is a cheetah in race car. Everyone knows that cheetahs are the speedsters of the animal world but this fine feline takes quickness to a new level . The happy wild cat in this mixed media sculpture has settled into the car’s cockpit and is ready to race. You can almost see his whiskers twitch in anticipation.

I created the cheetah from different colored clay bodies, finished with stains and color wash and fired to cone 5. The big cat is affixed to an awesome antique race car. The wheels are a bit askew on this well-loved vehicle but that only adds to its unique charm. The graphics on are still bright and colorful. The cheetah in race car sculpture measures about 17 inches long.
